For many years one of my must morning rituals has been lemon water. And I can’t recommend it enough how easy, quick and beneficial it has been for me and my clients. Not to mention that it never gets boring as there are so many different ways to make it.

I know this topic has been discussed a lot. Clearly, there isn’t one way fits everybody.I would like to share my long years love story with morning beauty drink. Listen up if you’ve got a minute!

Cut long story short, if something works in practice, means it works. Simple as that.End of story 🙂 .  

We all live in the real life of practicalities. And at the end of the day nobody cares what is written on paper or if it works the same way as in theory. You are a living and thriving body that should remain as such. Let me share a simple to make and to live with Elixir of Life. 

First of all, you will need the base – water. I believe it should be the cleanest and purest water that you can possibly have. Simply, because 70% of you (your body) is water. And no matter how much you keep thinking of protein, discussing if you should have it animal based or plant based. Water matters the most. This time I will stop discussion here. But I promise to go into details about water in one of the next posts.

Once you have got the cleanest water. You have got to decide what temperature is it going to be warm, room temperature or cold. I suggest you try all of them and keep re-trying frequently. There are obvious and less obvious differences in using different temperatures.

For example, season you are in as people tend to like warmer or room temperature water when it’s colder, opposite to cold water in warmer seasons. Personally, I enjoy room temperature water all year round as I find it’s working the best personally for me. Your body’s individuality is going to play a role too. People who are more sensitive to cold prone to have cold hands and feet, usually enjoy warmer temperatures of water.  

A pint?! Isn’t that half a liter (0,5l=16.9 ounces) ?! Yes, I encourage you to have a lot of water right after you wake up before even thinking of any food. Quite simply because it will help to flash internal body like you do for your skin when having morning showers. Take it as a wake up kick inside out. Just a friendly warning, the awesome feeling after morning showers is addictive 🙂

Moving on! You’ve got a pint of cleanest water in the right temper, perfect! Now you should add freshly squeezed lemon juice from half or a whole ripe lemon. I suggest you start with a half and see how it feels for your taste and stomach.  Years back I was using half a lemon. Nowadays I enjoy a full lemon squeezed into my very own special morning pint 🙂
